The most beautiful and elegant chateau in the entire Loire Valley. If you're in Paris, take the 1 hour speed train to Tours and then stay a night or two (I stayed 4 nights) to visit some of the best architecture in this area of France. Chateau de Chenonceau is a must and would take you at least about 4 hours to go through it! Visiting all the famous chateaux in this area may take as many as 3-5 days but it's worth every minute of one's time!
